Tell Morello to bar his windows at night and double lock his doors.

Wow, I knew we were missing something key with the design. Leave it to the internet...


During the loading screen I carefully evaluate and judge all the champions, when the game loads I congratulate whichever team won the loading screen boobie battle and global hf.

If there is a cho'gath in the game, without fail, they chime in that their alien boobies are the hottest.

Cracks me up every time.

The more you guys dislike him the more I feel like he's already got an awesome personality...

Think about it... his name is perfectly fitting. Omen.

The one that not even the mighty reds will speak of.


How about we just go make you more vaguely evil awesome looking champions and you forgot you asked for this one ;p

A demonish character that shoots quills or spikes is cool. The question is -- should it be a champion or an NPC (such as a minion or pet)? I tend to think we can make cooler reptilian or demonic champions.


I don't know, Omen here looks like he'd do well with Stealth.

What if he had a rogue-esque personality? With a sly tongue and sharp wit? When I look at Omen, I don't necessarily see something that is growling or hissing. I see Omen more like a sentient creature. Something that's actually very intelligent, but looks like he's just up to no good.

While I know this was a right-handed joke, this makes me genuinely sad. Omen, obviously has an attractive appeal to him. I can definitely understand and respect the developers decision to say "Well how do we create a theme/kit for him that is going to be liked," But just as much as you think you can create better champions, I think you can actually work with this one.

In a skins meeting, someone once suggested a 'Japanese Schoolgirl' or 'Magical Girl' theme for Chogath - you know, uniform and transformation sequence and so forth on Chogath. I for one think it could work.

I can totally see Omen with Warwick's current ultimate. It fits the art really well - jumping from a distance on top champion and shredding them.

Ranged AD mage carry? As long as Phreak can build him as a jungler you can't go wrong.
